Cleaning My Wood Furniture
Time and time again I have seen a HUGE no-no when I watch friends clean their coffee tables, wood dinettes and formal dining sets. They grab a can of furniture spray and go to town. OUCH! Many furniture polish products can leave a film that, over time, actually collect dust. Not to mention the reaction of the chemicals in that polish with the chemicals that were on the table's surface when you bought it. It doesn't matter if it's a name brand, or if it's made of oranges, lemons, limes, or pine trees... it's unnecessary. The best way to clean your wood furniture actually requires nothing more than mild soap and water. Yep, you read me right. Use a wet cloth followed by a dry one. That simple.
